Trust is not one thing…It is everything. More at: www.LeeCockerell.com
Do you have good relationships with everyone that you work with including your direct reports? Are you trusted?
Does “everyone” that you lead understand clearly your organizations vision, their purpose and their role,in the show, your customers expectations, and do the leaders understand the employees expectations?
Do you know what the main concerns of your team are? And if you know, are you working on them?
Are you creating a healthy, respectful, involved environment for your teams, so they can perform to the best of their ability every single day?
The main thing you have to do as a leader is to build trust among your teams. If they do not trust you and you do not trust them, you will never be able to move to the highest level of employee commitment, customer service, or business results.
Trust is in low supply right now with a high need for it. Bascially most people don’t trust most leaders. YOU can change that.
TRUST IS NOT ONE THING— IT IS EVERYTHING. TO BE TRUSTED, YOU HAVE TO BE TRUSTWORTHY! . . . Lee

Lee, Too many leaders think their trust needs to be earned. Makes no sense, give your trust upfront, unless proven wrong, it makes for a better, more effective workplace. If you do that your people are more likely to trust you too! People think to often that trusting someone leaves them vulnerable, without realizing that as a leader you are vulnerable regardless.
